While Phase 1 reopening measures are still in place this Father’s Day, that doesn’t mean celebrations are cancelled. With restaurants - ranging from casual to Michelin-starred - offering up an array of meat-centric feasts for takeaway and delivery, you’ll have no problem finding something to please dad.
Balancing the New Normal:
Opus Bar and Grill
For the best of both worlds, take advantage of Opus’ Steak and Lobster offer: a 1kg open-flame grilled Black Angus porterhouse steak is paired with a whole Boston lobster topped with punchy homemade harissa. To cap this lavish surf-and-turf meal for two, why not add a bottle of wine for just an additional $30?
Families with bigger appetites might also be interested to try the restaurant’s generous steak options, including a dry-aged Black Angus bone-in rib eye, a whiskey-aged Australian wagyu tomahawk steak, and the Premium Butcher’s Platter, which comes laden with Black Angus rib eye, wagyu rump cap, short ribs, and gourmet beef sausages.

Korean fast food joint, Burger+, is commemorating Father’s Day with a whole slew of promotions for the month of June. Indulge in superb Korean treats such as the Chicky Burger, which features a large, juicy slab of deep-fried chicken, and the Bulgogi Burger, with its bulgogi-marinated patty (you’ll get up to 60% off combo deals for islandwide delivery and self pick-up option).
For dads who prefer meat off the bone, why not order up some fried wings and drumsticks to go? Each order comes doused in your choice of three different flavours (honey, soy garlic, and spicy) and is guaranteed to satisfy the entire household.
Alma by Juan Amador
Fans of this one-Michelin starred restaurant can now enjoy some of its creations from the comfort of home. This Father’s Day, experience chef Haikal Johari’s signature melding of modern European techniques and Asian flourishes with the new Angus Beef Burger—where a juicy patty is cradled in butterhead lettuce, cheddar, a dash of gochujang sauce and two fluffy buns.
The burger lunch set comes with a house-made Valrhona chocolate brownie for dessert, and 10% of proceeds will be donated to the National University Hospital (NUH). Alma’s signatures are also available for delivery, including the Iberian pork jowl. The premium cuts are glazed with miso, cooked sous-vide and finished over binchotan coals for that irresistible smoky finish, and arrive garnished with spicy gochujang, seaweed, and pickled radish.
For a true indulgence this Father’s Day, look no further than Vue’s 200g A5 Black Wagyu rib eye, aged for 90 days in unsalted butter. Hailing from Kumamoto, a region in Kyushu known for having the only free-grazing cattle in Japan, this cut of rib eye boasts an intense buttery taste and enhanced marbling— the flavour is further brought out by grilling over binchotan coals.
Dads who prefer more control over their food, however, have the option of ordering their steaks uncooked. Each serving comes with grilled broccolini and baked potatoes with jamon; the first 12 pre-orders also arrive with a set of miniature Glenfiddich bottles. With limited quantities available, we suggest acting fast. Vue will also be launching a Black Angus cheeseburger on Father’s Day—a juicy patty paired with red cabbage slaw, cheddar and soft homemade brioche would make any hungry dad happy too.
Father’s Day pre-orders are only for delivery/pick-up from 19-21 June, (Fri to Sun). It is up on https://vue.oddle.me/en_SG for pre-orders now.
Gastro-bar Lumo is offering a complimentary bottle of Douglass Hill Merlot for every order of $180 and above (from 15 to 21 June only). Meat lovers can choose from a slew of hearty options, such as a spicy chicken drumstick appetiser, a toothsome Sakura pork chop drizzled with whisky raisin jus, and a wood-fired New Zealand Angus rib eye. Lumo’s cocktails are also on hand to supplement their meals—raise a toast to the man of the house with their breakfast-inspired cocktails, or order up some customised tipples with your choice of spirits, bitters, and garnish.
